Suspects Almost Got Away With Burglarizing a Gun Business

Undercover deputies patrolling in the area of Zipcode Place, West Palm Beach, observed a suspicious box truck with no license plate attached driving in the area. Deputies observed the suspects wearing gloves, exit the truck and begin to canvass the area. A short time later the suspects reentered their vehicle and drove around the plaza. Deputies conducted a traffic stop and found the suspects with a loaded handgun, gloves, crowbars, a bag of ammunition and two new bicycle’s (that still had tags and paperwork attached).

Both suspects were arrested and charged with the following:

NIXON was charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm in violation of Florida Statute 790.23(1)(a), Felon in Possession of Ammunition in violation of Florida Statute 790.23(1)(a), Unauthorized possession of a fictitious driver’s license in violation of Florida Statute 322.12(1)(a), Giving False Name Upon Being Detained in violation of Florida Statute 901.36(1), and Driving under a Suspended Driver’s License With Knowledge in violation of Florida Statute 322.34(2).

THOMAS was charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm in violation of Florida Statute 790.23(1)(a), Felon in Possession of Ammunition in violation of Florida Statute 790.23(1)(a) and Possession of Marijuana Less than 20 grams.
